Kent and Clifton, I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your Mom. I have very fond memories of her. Lori and I loved going to your house. Your Mom was a good babysister and always kept us entertained. Of course, she made her rounds with Avon often and I loved going thru her samples :-). I will be thinking of you through this difficult time. Take Care

Kent & Clifton, guys I am so sorry to hear of aunt Shirley's passing. I just heard today and feel bad that I didn't personally pass on my condolences. You and your families are in my thoughts and prayers. I loved your mom very much and have only the best memories of her. I will never forget the many nights I spent staying with you guys after catfishing or just messing around in the garage. Your mother treated me like I was one of her own. She's now with your dad in heaven catching up on being too long apart from each other. Again, I'm so sorry for your loss. God Bless, Jay
